Become Like the Pied Piper!

The Pied Piper story came to mind as I was thinking about following up with prospective clients.  Remember the story of the guy who played his song, and all the village children followed him?  This is a perfect metaphor for attraction in a coaching practice. I know that as each of us plays our own unique authentic song (shares our own signature message with the world), then others will hear, and follow us.  It sounds easy.  And it can be.  But in my coaching business, I realized that this was only half of the story.  And that I had to embrace the other half of the story in order for my clients to have true success. The other half of [...]

Speaking In Front Of Groups – Gulp, I received my first invitation, now what?

I have become a contributing author to a new online magazine called Healers Unite! My article entitled "Speaking in Front of Groups: Gulp, I received my first invitation, now what?" is featured in  the March issue in the category: Anxiety No More. I would like to share an excerpt from my article and invite you to share YOUR stories about speaking in front of groups... Do you ever experience “dread energy” when creating your presentation? Take a moment to reconnect with your source. Be fully delighted as you recall your stories. Visualize the listeners as they become engaged and moved during your presentation. Imagine meeting up with these same listeners, perhaps a year later, and picture them telling you how much you inspired them. [...]

The Energy of Your Business

Everything in my life has energy, and yours also. If you have a relationship with another person, it’s easy to see that the relationship has its own energy. It’s an amalgamation of two people. That makes sense to me. This thing about a business having its own energy was a little strange at first. Perhaps that’s also different than how you usually think about your business. We’ve all heard of a business having a mission, but not necessarily a soul. If you know your essence energy, values and purpose, then it’s really easy to make decisions. I would call my personal essence energy, “tender exuberance.” I feel this love and tenderness. I also have this very exuberant feeling within me. [...]

Group Coaching – Visualizing Your Ideal Group and Topic

We’ve been talking about the six-step model of group coaching. Now it’s time for the juicy part…the CONTENT! In the third step of a coaching group, the coach provides thought-provoking questions—or jumping off points—that are related to the group theme or topic. In order to do this with ease, there are a couple pieces that need to be put into place: visualizing exactly who is your ideal group member; and determining a topic that is very juicy for this person! First, get yourself in the receiving frame of mind. You may want to step away from your computer. Instead, this is the time to nourish your creativity. Do you like to journal? Go find that beautiful pen and lovely journal. Burn [...]

Group Coaching – Agreements

Recently we’ve been talking about the six-step model of group coaching that has supported countless coaches over the years and helped them get their core message out in a bigger way. We began by reviewing the 6-step model and also established Step 1, the Connection. Next in the 6-step model we consider Step 2, Coaching Agreements. In this step, the group agrees to a set of guidelines that they will follow when interacting and communicating with each other. We call these the Standards of Presence, a clearly articulated and easy to understand set of guidelines, which provides a proven container of safety in any group. I want to acknowledge the Inspired Learning Foundation and Coach For Life for these wonderful group guidelines – [...]

Group Coaching – Connecting Members

I recently shared the six-step model of group coaching that has supported countless coaches over the years and helped them get their core message out in a bigger way. The 6-step model begins with Step 1, the Connection. In this step, the coach facilitates the connection with the group members and helps them bring their full presence to the group. The connection allows you to shift the energy from wherever the group members have been previously, and bring them fully present for the group. I’d like to share a couple of ways of creating connection that you may wish to adapt for your own groups: Connecting members to each other In this type of connection, you want to call out the group member’s [...]

6 Steps to Group Coaching Success with a Spiritual Foundation

You already know that you need to have multiple streams of income to make your coaching business grow. You want to expand your core message to serve more people in less time. And you want to multiply your revenue, while still offering a high quality coaching experience. Most coach training programs do not teach how to do group coaching in their core curriculum, so it is natural to wonder about how to use your coaching skills in a group setting. If you have questions about group coaching, you are not alone. When I began my coaching practice, I wanted to add this powerful offering to my repertoire and did not know exactly how to do this. So I set out [...]

10 Ways to Increase Your Capacity to Receive

One of the most important aspects of running your business is your own internal capacity to receive. As a business owner, you must receive income, clients, guidance, and more. Yet as a coach, your inclination is to give. You are here to bring light to the world and support others in their transformation. This is all about giving. You have been a giver all of your life. It is easy to forget about your 'receiving muscle'. Over the years, I have done many different self-development practices to increase my internal capacity to receive, and each time I have up-leveled my inner capacity, I have reaped rewards in my business: new clients, income from unexpected sources, opportunities that just came to [...]
